When making this I used breadcrumbs from a whole grain bread, & also added 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper, but other than that, your recipe was followed! When served, I did top it with just a small amount of mild salsa, & we were very satisfied with these hash browns !

This was okay, but like others we felt it was missing something. DH said it needs gravy...mine came out a little dry but probably because I used ground turkey breast so there was probably no fat. I also turned on the broiler after it cooked and before I added the cheese so it could crisp up the hashbrowns. It was good with BBQ sauce. Made for 1-2-3-Hits.
My family liked this, but didn't love it. My 7-year old did what I suppose my folks would have done too if they weren't trying to eat it the way it was put together...he put the potatoes on the side and used ketchup on the meat. Thanks for the recipe. With a few adjustments, I figure it would work out nicely. Possibly adding a creamy layer under the potatoes?
